mikhail2400 Thanks for bumping this thread Krisbman, I didn't even know it exsisted till today. Im a single father. had custody since 2008 when the state took took them from her and gave them to me. My sons are 15 nand 17 soon to be 16 in 7 days and 18 in 40 days.
I no longer have any problems with there mom as she passed away in 2011. Bad life style choices, that's all ill say on that.
My 17 year old helped me put the new lift on the jeep while my 15 year old wanted nothing to do with it. I understand the 15 year olds reasons, I was him one time. Just glad the 17 year old is willing to spend so much time with me. He loves the Jeep as much as I do. It belonged to his grandfather (my dad) who passed last September on Friday the 13th. Both sons were close to my mom and dad, still are close with my mom.
I didn't read the whole thread but did bounce thru some of it. This seems like a good place to vent when we need to. Not only can we vent here but we can be assured of it reaching someone who has either been down the same road or is headed there now. Thanks for starting this thread harleyrider!!

krisbman This thread needed a bump. Soo, whats up fellas?? Well, the boy turns 18 in less than a month. In the state of Oregon the kids can petition to have child support continued until they are 21 if they are going to school and meeting all the requirements. I havent seen anything in the mail or been served papers yet. Not that i would be out anything but I have to be honest. Im tired of being strapped. The extra $350 a month would be very nice

Harleyrider1108 What's up? I was almost there two weeks ago. Literally.

This morning he flew out to his mother's for the Summer. We didn't get to hang out last night because he wanted to see his friends. At the airport they asked how old he was and if I wanted to go to gate. I figured we didn't have time last night so I had a few hours with him to have breakfast.

Going down the escalator to the train there was an announcement. "Please stand to the right and face forward."

I stepped to the middle, turned around and, (in my best Cartman) said "Whateva, I do what I want!"

The couple behind us laughed. He just looked horrified.

Six weeks without him now.

Harleyrider1108 I'm just stressed that he gets there ok. I feel I've covered my bases and have the options I need. I didn't buy this damn ticket and it seems I'm the only one that cares.

He'll be surprised when he comes back and the Jeep has a new lift.

...yup feel for ya my friend...

i know it doesn't help, but i too will not see my girls this Christmas or the last 7 for that matter.

their mother is a Christmas fanatic...go here...do this...we are going to be late...cousins are here...etc...

they will be 4 blocks away, and i won't see them...i won't put the extra pressure on them to stop here...they have enough with their mom...

dads sometimes have to get in the Jeep and take the high road...together!
